Default FX 5900XT or Radeon 9800PRO

I was thinking of which to get, and the 5900XT is only $190, whereas the 9800PRO is $211, my question is, which would run better:

stock R9800Pro/stock FX5900XT
stock R9800Pro/oc'd FX5900XT
oc'd R9800Pro/stock FX5900XT
oc'd R9800Pro/oc'd FX5900XT

I think the 9800 Pro is better than almost any FX5900 XT unless you realllllllly overclocked it.

The 9800 Pro you mentioned has a really good price/performance. Get that.

What kind of 9800 Pro though? Just making sure you don't get the wrong one.
